Chinese manufacturing giant, Huawei, and the US are still trying to work out solutions to their recent issues. According to Huawei officials, it has been an uphill task to get the US government to the negotiation table. However, negotiations is in progress, just very slow.
According to the official, several representatives of Huawei are trying to negotiate with the US authorities to ease the negative impact of the ban, but in an interview with the Financial Times, Huawei’s director of public affairs, Joy Tan, explained that the negotiations between the two sides have been slow. There is hardly any substantive negotiation result.
Joy Tan said that she could not meet with the Trump administration after several trials but will not give up. “We will try again. We have not been able to communicate with people in the Trump administration, but this is not to say that we have not tried it.”
In any case, the attempt to relieve the US ban on Huawei has not made any substantial progress. The lack of Google Mobile Services (GMS) has already had a certain impact on Huawei’s foreign smartphone business. Although, Huawei is already working on “Huawei Mobile Services (HMS)”, it is quite new and will require a long development period. In fact, the company needs to work consistently for years if it hopes to have an alternative to GMS. As of now, there are reports that the upcoming Huawei P40 will come with dual OS. This means that it will be compatible with both Android and HongMeng.
